You will want to get lug centric wheels on a 1st gen. Taco.

When I bought aftermarket wheels for my 94 Corolla from Tire Rack, they sent me plastic spacers to make the wheels hub centric.

No it does not matter really, if you want you could always get hub rings to increase the diameter of the hub to match that of the wheel.

Lug centric wheels place all the forces on the lug vs hub centric where the wheel centers on the hub, when you move to after market wheels the diameter of the centers are wider, thus why they do not fit snugly on the stock hubs.

In any case, I would not worry about it. Just my $0.02. Google the subject and you will get plenty of info.

since you have a 1st gen you need Lug centric.

Depends on the wheels. The ProComp 7089s MUST be lug-centric to fit the 05+ Tacomas. The center holes on the hub-centric ones too small to fit over the hub ring on the truck.

First hand experience on that one. I bought wheels last week and just had a new set arrive literally 20 minutes ago because the first ones were hub centric.

Can you explain in more detail, not exactly sure what you are saying and I'm thinking about getting some black 7089's....?

There's a hole in the center of the wheel. If you buy the hub-centric version of the 7089s, that hole is too small to fit over the factory hub.

The factory rims, at least 05+, are hub-centric but the hub is not a universal size. The Toyota hub is larger than center hole on the hub-centric 7089s.

If you buy the lug-centric wheels, the hole in the center of the wheel is much larger and will clear the factory hub ring.

The clearest picture of the factory hub ring I have available at the moment:


Lug centric on the rear barely clears:

How do you like the new wheels so far, any pics mounted on your truck? Did they ship you rings to put over the hubs?

I'm happy with them. Been running them for almost 3 years now without issue.

The new wheels are for my spares. I just goofed with the part numbers when I called and placed my order.

I have center caps for all 8 wheels but am not installing them. My truck's far from pretty and those would just be 1 more thing to get banged up and/or lost.
